Project I’m on is in attic. Long walk w/many stairs. I have a 15+ year old Hitachi 10” compound slide but it weighs almost 70 lbs so I bought lil jimmy who weighs in at 23 lbs. Big difference. Only cutting one bys so it’s perfect. Plugged in, pulled trigger and it started. Paid 200. 2 years ago same was $130. Oh well. Nice to have a lightweight saw to carry to jobs. I cut crown flat and I’d use it to cut crown. Surprisingly accurate

Got this one to use with my planer for a jointing sled ,works really well,seems to be well made and strong and is versatile with a single roller and also comes with the ball bearing set of rollers that is easy to change to with just a flip and locking latch ,, makes it adaptable to use with the table saw .and folds up for ease of storage .thinking of maybe another for the infeed end ,now using it at the outfeed end .https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web...

If I could have rated it with less than 1 star I would have. In short, don’t waste your time! Every joint I tested leaked! There was noting I could have done to stop the leaks.

I wanted handsaw sharpening experience, and I got more (sharpening experience) than I expected

This past summer, I had to repair some molding along the exterior of a bay window. Given that it was a very small number of molding cuts to repair, I opted to get a plastic miter box and backsaw to do the work rather than pull out a power miter saw. I saw it not so much as an additional expense, but rather a chance to get some handsaw sharpening experience. My criteria was to find a cheap handsaw that I wouldn’t feel bad ruining by experimenting with sharpening. After playing with a few...

Bought one of these drill saw bits I noticed at Lowe’s. Looked like a great idea to me so I ran home and gave it a shot. Check it out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjQuewOtNOs

Much better than a utility knife.

I’ve had this for a while, but it hasn’t really gotten a workout until the past few days.I’m redoing my router table top and since my table saw is a bosch 4100 now, safely cutting a 4’x8’ sheet of laminate into manageable pieces isn’t feasible. Cutting the laminate with this tool is easy; I just made the necessary tick marks on the laminate sheet, laid a 4’ scrap of apple ply and ran the scoring tool along the apply ply with firm pressure several t...

Worst tool I've ever purchased

Worst tool I've ever purchased

Some years back I needed another adjustable wrench and thought this might be handy. Rather than a worm gear at the head there is a slide on the handle that adjusts the jaws. Fit and finish of the tool is excellent and I like the color scheme but that’s where the positive ends. The slide mechanism is positioned where your hand or thumb will rest on it while using the tool and it opens very easy, way too easy, but typically binds when closing which means that it’s constantly creepin...

For a cheap box store hand saw I was very surprised at how well it cut

For a cheap box store hand saw I was very surprised at how well it cut

I recently picked up a truck full of reclaimed barn wood that needed to be cleaned up and planed. I had a lot of thick boards and some long 10ft boards that were just to big or long to cut comfortably with my RAS. I figured it would be quickest and easiest to cut them with a handsaw. I was using one of my vintage Disston handsaws to do this until I hit a nail which really messed up my saw. Not wanting to risk damaging another one of my vintage saws I decided to just buy one of those new cheap...

I’ve been wanting to replace my noisy Rigid only because it’s noisy. I wasn’t expecting all the other features. The wall mount frees up valuable floor space. The hoses are much more flexible than I’m accustom to. They feel more like rubber than plastic. They are the smaller diameter but the the main unit and the hose ends appears to be able to accept the larger (2.25” I think) hoses if you prefer. I like the conventional dust bag. It appears to be an op...

Great Sliding Compound Miter Saw for Woodworkers on a Budget

Great Sliding Compound Miter Saw for Woodworkers on a Budget

10-06-2010 08:00 PM by PocketHole69 | 10 comments »

I’ve had an old Ryobi $99 Home Depot special miter saw for years and was looking to upgrade to a sliding model for wider cut capacity. I really wanted a laser too, because lasers are awesome. I did a lot of searching on Amazon and at the usual woodworking sites and pretty much resigned myself to spending $400-500 for a decent sliding compound miter saw from Milwaukee or Dewalt and started saving money. That was until I walked through the tool section at Lowes and noticed their ne...
